Office 2003?

Is Office 2003 even out? And how can MS Server 2003 be best when it just came out? I think it's out?

Odviously this is Microsoft centric.

Cheers,

Sweetsdream

Who are the 1000 people voting in this poll? The margin of error on this thing has got to be huge.

If you've ever taken a basic stats class you would know that 1000 people is plenty enough to represent a huge population. For example, standard Gallup polls (such as the one for the president's approval rating) often involve just around 1000 people yet they accurately represent the entire 300+ million population of the US to a margin of error no greater than 2 or 3 percent.

Of course, this is completely dependent on the manner in which the poll respondants are selected. I don't know how infoworld conducted their poll so I really can't say how accurate it is or how large the margin of error may be.

I have an idea for the biggest IT disaster for the year: Universal Plug 'n' Play being enabled by default, perhaps?
